Re: Foil in the lines nightmare!

Had my foil in my lines many times.

The one time I couldnt get it out I body dragged into shore and flew with the foil hanging off the bar and landed it.....

Re: Stab for Spitfire

It makes sense that an anhedral wing would push a foil in multiple directions and help with roll stability.....besides just a single direction - being up on a flat wing.

Re: Stab for Spitfire

I gave it a few months. But the flat wings are not supportive of gusty winds...which is all we tend to get in these parts.

Re: Stab for Spitfire

Could be....Im just looking for roll stability from the spitfire. The only thing I can think of is anhedral. I will be mounting the 683 to it soon and see how that goes... since Ono foil (which I think has anhedral stab) is not an option anymore.

Re: Stab for Spitfire

I think your right. :anonym:

This is always confusing....especially on a canard... good thing I had a nice sesh before trashing myself on the zeeko...

I will make another one and try it the other way

Stab for Spitfire

Added some roll stability to the zeeko with an Fone stab....this shim was 3D printed with a carbon fiber filament. Surprisingly strong.

Here are some images.
